No your wrong !!

Although "Vintage " is used in a phrase for old stuff its actually a Wine adjective used to describe the year of grapes....usually over 20 years old like what vintage is the wine...

Now Retro is a style from the past...never seen before and not Glam rock for instance in music...or the swinging 60,s
So the phrase how very retro would be ok if i came home with a pair of platform shoes on

Having said all that.....Before arcade Machines and vic20's i dont ever remember hearing the word Retro......strange
